I agree.I have heard similar stories, and frankly I’m not surprised as there really is no correlation between ‘status’ and ‘honesty’ in this business, as recent dealings with Chicago Music Exchange have proven yet again.
What galls me the most is while one can make a mistake (although as self proclaimed ‘experts’ this stuff shouldn’t even get into the stock list, let alone be sold!), it’s obvious sellers are completely aware of all issues, but just don’t give a shit, and have zero intention to amend descriptions or any genuine remorse.
What was the outcome on the refin ‘58 Goldtop deal? I would post this on the LPF and TGP too.
One of the things that shocked me about CME is, that they have a "dirty" (modified) '61 SG/LP listed for $12K. Which is about the going rate for a completely stock one.
I've personally dealt with those guys, and thankfully knew my shit, but to see that kind of stuff from a company with their reputation, kind of pisses me off.
